What type of CPU do you have? It could be that it's being detected as an 8-bit one erroneously (a known problem on some Pentiums, if I remember correctly). You can check in Device Manager on Windows, but I'm not sure what the requsite command in Linux would be, sorry...

I suggest you try using Lynx. That way all websites -- 8-bit or otherwise -- will end up looking the same.

The problem started today, when I logged on briefly this morning (I posted this topic then). It is still in this condition at the moment. The website is entirely operable, although annoying to look at.

Here is a screenshot:

Communicating under this skin is definitely an issue. But I guess I can live with it for one day as long as I get to laugh at those who thought something was wrong with their computer.

I find it interesting that the PayPal image for donations is still the way it is, while everything else is this 8-bit.

I thought that would be obvious. Y'see, we don't really care if anyone posts or not. Donations, on the other hand, are important, since they enable the UTI-Staff to buy beer and throw parties.
